So, this weekend I went on my first significant solo outing since the incident. I went to Saks in Union Square on a beautiful Saturday afternoon, figuring everywhere I went would be crowded and I wouldn't worry much about my surroundings. It was a good move except that being out with a scab on my swollen lip is not pleasant, the looks I got, or people trying hard not to look, was not nice. That's what I get, but it was their Friends and Family sale and I had a gift card that was about to expire.
Anyway, I did make a couple of interesting discoveries, the first is this Rock and Republic Recession Collection jeans - they are much lower priced than their normal denim, about a $100 less. I LOVE these jeans - I had to buy them, they are really flattering on my body, creating curves where I have none which is always nice.
I like that it has no whiskering and the narrow leg is perfect for all of my flats.
The other discovery was even more surprising to me - I never jumped on the Seven jeans bandwagon. They just never looked right on me, but now they make this petite version of the A-pocket jeans and these fit me perfectly!
In standard 7 jeans, the rise is too long for me and I guess the knee break was always in the wrong place, these fix both of those issues for me AND I don't have to get them shortened, perfection.
